  2. Robert Colwart says:

    I want to thank you for playing your dads song A Moment isn’t very long the other afternoon. I have asked for that song a 100 times.
    Also you belong on TV not radio. How else is everyone going to see how pretty you are.
    If I ever had a chance to sit down with your dad I have a thousand questions for him like, where did you come up with this song and that song.
    Please keep up the great work with all the others at The Roadhouse

    Thank all of you

  3. Joan Clark says:

    Paula, you are doing one heck of a great job, you play songs that I have never heard before, and you play songs that you have heard for the first time, that I am familiar with. Your show makes me smile, a lot of good memories with the country music world, Keep up the good work, you are an amazing young lady. Joan from Little Rapids Wi 13 miles south of Green Bay

  4. MONTE JONES says:

    I would like to make you and amy a pendant, the stone will be agate. They will be pretty, but im not a master jeweler. I just want to give you something for all the great music you play for me. Im a driver, you make the miles go by much faster. The pendants will cost nothing, just a gift for all that you do for me. Ill never say that you have or wear them, im really not in it for the money, just the joy of seeing something beautiful coming from my hands and mother nature. Ill send them to 310 willie nelson blvd. If thats wrong let me know.

    Hi Paula,
    I just had to drop a line to say how much I enjoy your disc jokey ways.
    All my life I occasionally find a D.J that fits my tastes for music and with just enough talk in-between. You and Mike Terry both fit the bill for me at this time.
    I just wish Sirius would put you and Mike on daytime thru the week when I can listen more to the great country classics. Please keep up the good work.

    A Real Fan
    P.S. sorry to hear abouy your dog and have a better next month!

  7. Daniel de gracia says:

    Can u play..these boots were ment for walking by Nancy Sinatra.

  8. Mike says:

    Paula, It’s seems to me that Willies Road House does not play any of Marty Stuart’s music. Am I wrong? Is there a reason? Love to know the story. Thanks, Mike

  9. trudy r chesser says:

    My mom had a 45 of Bobby helm singing the song I’m the man, I wanted to ask if u could find it and play it some night after 9, thank u

  10. LindaLee says:

    Hi, Trudy. The best way to reach Paula is to leave a message on her facebook page, or on the Wille’s Roadhouse facebook page, or through the siriusxm website. Best wishes. I just don’t think she will see your message here.

  11. John Clary says:

    Hi Paula – the duet of “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” that you and Willie do on “To All the Girls”just knocks my socks off every time I hear it, which is often, since that is one of my favorite Willie cd’s. Have the two of you ever considered collaborating on an all duet cd? I think it would be a chart buster!
    Love your show! — john

  12. Ann Smeal says:

    Hi Paula:
    I love listening to your show. The little bits and pieces that you share about your live and your Dad make it even move enjoyable. I frist heard your Dad sing when my Dad brought home his first album, I think it was 1958. My sister and I thought he was the best. Every night when it was time for bed instead of a bedtime story, my dad would stand in the doorway and we sang “turn out the lights the parties over” My dad always said that being kid is just a party everyday then bedtime and in the morning it was the “same old thing again”.
    Tomorrow April 28th is my Dad’s 90th birthday. He is in pretty good physical health but he is suffering from dementia. He still knows we are family (saying Hi Dad gives him a good clue) He spends his days watching old westerns and listening to his vast country music collection, when Mom remembers to turn on the stereo for him. He still sings along to the music.
    Trying to figure out what to give my dad is tough but I am sure he would love some new music but is old pal. You see when we were young (me and my 9 brothers and sisters) my mom had a 8mm movie camera that she videos of us. many were taken on the great move out west in 1956 and every year we would take a two week camping trip going to many places in the west and every few years back east. just imagine 2 adults and 10 kids in a volks wagon bus traveling around the country. When my Dad retired he copied all the 8mm movies onto VHS and gave it narration. For all the parts that were taken during vacations, he dubbed in “on the road again”
    I am wondering if I can get a CD of your Dads newest album. my dads’ system is a 150 cd changer so the music needs to be on CD. Is there anyway to start getting this to him right away?

  13. Warner Sartin says:

    Can u help me please. I would like to come to Willies picnic and I like Willie have breathing problems. I have lung cancer and can’t stand the heat. I have not seen Willie since he played on a flat bed trailer in Madison,, Tn. I think In the late 50 s or 60 s. I’m 79 yrs. old and this is on my bucket list. Please let me know if u can help me on this. All I will need is shade. Love ur show and either listening roadhouse or Honky Tonk tavern. I also love Dallas Wayne

  22. Larry Pellikan says:

    My in-laws were down over Easter and heard a song sung by Willie on channel 59 about a man that they thought resembled the life of Jesus. They are trying to remember the name of the song. They heard it when you were hosting the show. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You, Larry

  23. Kathleen Persinger says:

    Dear Paula,
    My Dad and your Dad share the same birthday. Dad will be 91. My dad lives in a veterans home in Woodsville OH. We live in Delmar, Delaware. It is 500 miles every time I go to see my Dad I went there a few weeks ago and my Dad dictated a birthday wish to your Dad. Happy Birthday Willie Nelson.It is my birthday first so you just share. And then he actually signed his full name, Jim Marling. I remember my grandfather when he signed his name for the last time. He gave our grandson his bible and signed the bible. I wrote just what dad said. I hope your dad does not take offense. My dad is very happy to have the same birthday.

    Our dads share another event in common, as do we. Our Parents lost sons to suicide and we lost brothers. There is ;never a way to release the pain from that kind of loss. People are cruel. I will write you about how I know our brothers are in heaven. .GOD told me.

    But let me leave you on a happy note. We raised our only grandson. His best friend was practically raised by his grandmother also There is one house between us. Our family is from Appalacia. We grew up with country music. If you raised boys, then you know that on rainy afternoons, the boys are playing cars on the rug. The country music station was on the TV and i was going into the living room. Your dad was singing with someone else. Your dad was singing the chorus harmonizing. At some point before I started into the living room, they had been discussing the singer. Evidently, John William and his friend Even did not think much of the singer who was singing the melody and verses. There conclusion, Mr. Willie Nelson is such a good singer, he can even make a bad singer sound good. That was that with them. They were not listening anymore. I had toe walk back out of the living room, so the boys did not hear me laughing. That is really something to be a good singer and make bad singers sound good.
    Love to you and your Dad,
    Happy Birthday Mr. Nelson, a truly great singer

  24. Judy Fahey says:

    I sent you a request about playing my husband’s new CD whic has some awesome songs. “The Truck Came with A Boy”. There is ”where did my youth go” which would be a good one for Willie. As I mentioned my husband has terminal stage 4 cancer, and if you could p,as any of his tunes that would make him so happy. I can send you mp3s. PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
    I don’t know how long I have him for. He has a wonderful singing voice.

  25. frank kincaid says:

    Paula, I listen to almost every night on Sirius radio. I have a story to tell you about yours and my dads. My dad drove truck for all his life and one day he was broke down in southern California in the late “70”s, so he pulled over to the side of the road and soon a tour bus stopped to offer help. Low and behold, it was your dad Willie. Now, my dad was never a fan of Willie Nelson even though he loved country music and that was all he listened to,but, according to my Mom, after your dad stopped to help. my dad became a fan of your dad such that we started going to his concerts all over the north west California state for many years after that and you could never say anything bad about Willie.
    I have a suggestion for your nightly music arrangement. Would you ever consider playing a 1 to 2 hour segment a couple times a week of a program of one country music artist? There’s a station in Stockton that plays a weekly show called “Get the Led out” they play two hours of nothing but Led Zeppelin music. I think your fans would love to here a one to two hour segment of, say. Merle Haggard, Patsy Cline, Bobby Baer, Willie Nelson, and many other older classic singers.
    What do you think of that?
    Frank Kincaid;

  26. LindaLee says:

    Frank — reach out to Paula on her facebook page or through Sirius/xm. I am sure she would enjoy hearing your story.

  27. Carl says:

    Paula, Glad to hear you play the chokin’ Kind by Waylon. There are a lot of great songs that are not played on Willies any more. Merle’s early songs like White Boy, A mixed up mess of a heart. Jake Hooker, Night Coach out of Dallas, A lot of Dale Watson is missing, Landon Dodd, Call of the Wine. What about Brian Burns/Johnny Bush Lost Highway Saloon? Alcohol of Fame by the Wood Brothers. BoxCar Willie’s the train Medely, thats a real good 10 steppin song. What about Roy Drusky’s Long Long Texas road? These are just some of the songs that fit into Willie’s Roadhouse format

  28. Gene from Fresno says:

    If you want to get rid of your wild hogs, there are a f’ew natural predators, including humans. Most are wild animals that you dont want around, but one is a Kata hula Hound. They are very intelligent and loving dogs. Get a couple of them and your hog problems will be over soon and you will have two new friends to keep you company.

  29. Arlyn W. says:

    First, what is your email at the Road House? How can I email Charlie Monk a message?

    A week or so ago you said (probably joking) that you’d like to hear Dallas Wayne and Charlie Monk do a duet. That would be great, but a whole lot better if you and Willie could get in the act, too. You could call yourself the Road House Rounders.

    I’ve changed my work hours and don’t hear you much. I think I’m going to shift my hours so that I start home at 6:00. The problem there is that I-25 is a mess then. Of course that would mean about 20 extra minutes filled with the Road House.

    Love ya, love your humor. Reminds me of my own childhood in the Western Slope mountains.

    PS. Ask your dad if he remembers a neighbor in Dripping Springs, Butch R. He moved to OK when TX outlawed chicken fighting.

  30. kevin says:

    love your show, love your stories you add in, I think people would be healthier if they actually listened to the msgs in some of these old country songs, they speak to the heart

  31. Bill L says:

    Was listening to your show yesterday when you mentioned Laid Back Country Picker-Magoffin County Cadillac. Contacted David and bought a CD. Keep telling us about unknown bands. Love your show on Outlaw channel and your dad’s Roadhouse.

  32. Ronnie Christmas says:

    Hey Paula I drive all night long why you play the songs I love Can you please play Whispering Pines for me That was my mom’s favorite song Thank you

  33. Jimmie Weber says:

    We listen to you all of the time. Why don’t you ever play any Ricky Van Shelton songs?

  34. Alan R Kocar says:

    Paula Love the music you choose to play got to see your dad a year ago front row seats ,couldn’t have been any better. Hopefully you will continue to play the music you choose just wish someday they will go back to the old format when it was Willie Place really miss hearing ,Bobby Flores ,Jake Hooker, Justin Trevino, Tony Booth , Amber Digby, Darrell McCall and so many others not saying that the music is bad but would like to see more of these artists added in your program talk to pops and see if he can make it happen. You and your family have a nice xmas and a happy new year hope to here back .

  35. Brian Shane says:


    Can you please play music by a great singer named Emi Sunshine on willies roadhouse . She does a great rendition of Jolene and sings other songs such as steppingstone and little blackbird . If you can play her thank you very much.

    Brian Shane

  36. Steve Colter says:

    Ms. Nelson,

    I want to thank y’all for keeping the memories of my daddy alive. He was born in Crockett, Texas and moved to Phoenix,Arizona with his parents. Listened to Country and Western with me,my brothers,and my sister! Love your stories. Keep fighting the good fight…


  37. Charlotte Sharpe says:

    Hi Miss Paula,
    Love your show, love your music! My husband and I just returned from Nashville where we attended the tribute to your father on January 12th. .Best.Concert.EVER! Thanks for letting us know about it on your broadcast.

  38. Dan Ross says:

    Hello Paula,

    How about a little JJW?
    Your the greatest!!!
    Thank You

  39. Peter Brumlik says:

    Watched the country music awards, only it wasn’t country music. It was Rock, Pop, Rap and junk. No mention of the Grand Old Opry or the people that paved the way for these people. It seems like the country music scene is split between ‘Real’ country music and stuff to suck in kids.
    I listen to you with pleasure,

  40. john gunter says:

    Paula: Please be advised: No one gives a crap about your stupid dogs, cats or any of the other personal issues. Just play the songs and don’t bother us with how much you love everybody you’ve ever met and what your weekend plans are. Just play the music!!

  41. Al Cressler says:

    Hi, heard you talking about liking Colorado, we have a 13 acre self substained horse ranch we are thinking about selling, 4 corners area, near Cortez, great view gentle suthern sloop, about 3 miles from the Dolores river and Mcfee lake, not far from Dunton, Rico, Silverton, Durango, Masa Verd, great location. Keep up the great music.

  42. Russ Mercer says:

    Dear Ms Nelson, I find myself tuning into other XM stations when you are on-air. I believe you have talents in other areas. Frankly, I do not enjoy your banter at all. You don’t appear to have a historical foundation in country music and appear to supplement that with chatter about your home and pets. I do not have mean or angry feelings about you, I just think that you lack an “on-air” personality. Neither do I and I know it. You can sing very well. Please consider limiting your presence on the radio. Understand if you would please, I do not harbour ugly feelings toward you, I just am not entertained when you are broadcasting. Bless You and Your Pets

  43. Brian Wooster says:

    Wow!! The thing about that comment above that I found so refreshing is that you rarely get to read words written by a total lunatic.
    Sorry….We love you!!
    Thank you!!!

  44. Raymond BEADNELL says:

    I enjoy listening to you Paula at Willies Roadhouse on Sirius Radio. Thank you for playing the genuine country music songs that I grew up with and have learned to appreciate and love. Modern day country music cannot measure up to the artists of the past like George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Bill Anderson, Hank Williams, and your Papa Bear Willie Nelson. My karaoke entertainment plays the real country songs. Feel free to message me. Thanks so much Paula! ???

  45. Roger Perala says:

    Paula, Love your show. You have such a great voice with just the right country accent that I never tire of listening to you. I love the depth of experience you bring to the music as well (it’s like you grew up in that world 🙂 . The others do a pretty good job as well, but you’re my fave! Keep up the good work and ignore the disgruntled, you’re doing a great job.

  46. Jimmy waddell says:

    Love you Paula

    See you on outlaw country in the morning
    Be nice, hope willie is feeling better

  47. Vonnie Marshburn says:

    Paula ,Can you tell me when the A&E Tribute to Willie that was recorded in Nashville in January 2019 will air on tv?What an awesome tribute!I can’t seem to find out anything.Thanks for any info you can provide.
    Vonnie Marshburn

  48. Don says:

    Love what you do. The way you talk on Sirius/XM makes me feel like a close neighbor. I was putting a pool at the same time you were and had to laugh at your experiences.

  49. Jim says:

    Was that Lucas that opened the show on Oct 22 in Las Vegas. He came out and didn’t say anything just started singing 4 or 5 songs and walked off. I could listen to him whoever he is. We saw your Dad in Phoenix and the sound system was much better there it seemed that they had the system set on harsh in Vegas. There were 6 people on the shuttle in Phoenix 2 from Seattle 2 from Atlanta and 2 from San Diego all had traveled 1,000’s of miles to see Wilie.

    Thank you

  50. brian says:

    you play a wonderful selection
